Mission statement: The Capilano Student Cinema Club’s mission is to provide a diverse, alternative, and immersive cinema going experience for the student community of Capilano University.

We hope that we can provide an undercurrent to the learning experience at CapU through the watching, studying, and celebration of film as an art and as entertainment. To accomplish this we will draw from a varied and nuanced library of films, including both established classics and essential art house, to be screened weekly in the BOSA theatre. This will be open to all students of Capilano University interested in participating.
